Ontario Together: Help Fight Coronavirus

The province of Ontario wants to ensure that our frontline healthcare workers are appropriately protected as they care for those who are ill with COVID-19. To mitigate any shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers due to Coronavirus, we are asking for all workplaces in Ontario to assist if they can.

Many workplaces are working at lowered capacity due to the pandemic or may have stores of PPE that they do not need immediately. If your business or organization can provide medical products such as ventilators, N95 or equivalent respirators, surgical/procedure masks, gloves, swabs, eye protection or disposable gowns, please visit the Ontario Together website tell us what you have available using this link.


Help prevent the spread of COVID-19

IHSA asks all individuals and employers to continue taking the following precautions to keep themselves healthy and safe and to help prevent community transmission of COVID-19.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly (2 minutes) and often
  • Practice social distancing (2 metres)
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue or your sleeve. Dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand scrub
  • Keep surfaces clean and disinfected
  • Stay home if you are feeling ill

We appreciate your support and understanding in helping us control the spread of infection to ensure we all remain healthy and safe.

If you think you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, use Ontario's self-assessment tool to help determine if you need to seek further care. Also ensure that you inform anybody you may have been in close contact with if you are experiencing any of these COVID-19 symptoms.
